Azealia Banks has accused Diplo of owing her £12,780 ($20,000).
The '212' hitmaker has embarked on an online ranted aimed at the producer, insisting he still owes her a considerable amount of money as a result of their lawsuit last year for their 2012 collaboration 'F**k Up the Fun', which was allegedly stolen from Dutch DJ MasterD.
In the tweets, which have since been deleted, she raged: "@Diplo I don't need your advice. I just want your beats. If no beats then go away.
"Yes, and passing off beats to me that aren't yours and leaving me to foot the bill when we get sued is also not cool @diplo
"@diplo you owe me $20,000 by the way.
"@diplo I really don't understand why my name is in your mouth at all. Didn't you say you never wanted to work with me again ? (sic)"
The strange tirade of abuse seemed to come out of nowhere as Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, has not recently mentioned the 24-year-old rapper.
Meanwhile, Azealia - who surprise released her debut album 'Broke with Expensive Taste' through Prospect Park Records last November after ending her record deal with Interscope and Polydor - recently revealed she won't be able to release any new music until February 2016 after further troubles with management and labels.
Earlier this month, she tweeted: "So prospect park has me for management and Label (stupid azealia, right) now Jeff kwatinetz no longer wants to manage me BUT...
"is holding me in my album contract until february 2016. so..... there won't be any new music until March 2016. sorry guys. :( (sic)."
